Soccer News – West Bromwich Albion-Arsenal
West Bromwich Albion hosts Arsenal in a match from the 21th round of the English Premier League.
West Bromwich are having a difficult time in the Premier League, even after the sacking of the manager Tony Pulis. W.B.A. are currently 19th in the league with just 15 points won so far and a record of 2 wins, 9 draws and 9 defeats. In their last five games West Bromwich didn’t win once, losing three times and making two draws.
It’s been awhile since West Bromwich relegated to the Championship, but this could be the case if the manager Alan Pardew don’t find a way to improve his team and make him win on a more regular basis.
Now W.B.A. will have a difficult task against Arsenal. Arsene Wenger’s team is 6th in the Premier League standings, but trailing on just one point behind the 4th Liverpool. This season The Gunners are missing on Champions League football, so now everyone at the Emirates is motivated to make sure that the team will return to the competition.
Arsenal’s record so far is 37 points, won from 11 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five matches Arsenal won just two times, making three draws in the process. This is not the type of performance which will qualify The Gunners to the Top 4 and Arsene Wenger knows it very well.
Let’s have a look at the team news.
West Bromwich can’t use the injured Nacer Chadli and James Morrison, while Salomon Rondon is doubtful for the game.
Meanwhile Arsenal will be without the injured Nacho Monreal, Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla. They are all unavaliable for selection by the manager Arsene Wenger.
This is important game for both West Bromwich and Arsenal. A game for survival and game for a Champions League qualification.
